Yamaha YCL-450N Clarinet

Featuring a bell shape and barrel design similar to that of the V Series, the YCL-450 offers a surprisingly 'professional' sound with an easy response. The new bell design gives improved intonation and projection, especially in the all-important lower register, while the new barrel enhances the 450's response, flexibility and tonal focus.

 

Features

  • New 65mm barrel

The YCL-450N intermediate model clarinet incorporates some of the distinct qualities of Yamaha's professional and custom clarinets. One of these features is a 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. Players looking to "step-up" their performance will do just that with this instrument.

  • New bell design

Nothing can be more frustrating than a soft sounding, out of tune instrument. A New resonance chamber in the bell of the YCL-450N aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes, allowing for consistency and confidence.

  • "Blue" steel spring material

Intermediate instruments need to feel different than student model instruments. Part of making the YCL-450N "feel" better is the upgrade in spring material. Blue steel springs give the keys a lighter touch and feel while producing a smooth, quick action.

  • Sculptured, nickel-plated keys

The nickel-plated keys provide a more clear and focused tone. Also, the nickel-plated keys of the YCL-450N provide a good alternative for people who have an allergic reaction to silver-plating. In order to make the keys to the appropriate strength level, a technique called power forging is used. The results of this hi-tech process are keys that are exceptionally durable and contoured to the best possible ergonomic shape.

  • Straight tone holes with tapered undercut

Yamaha intermediate model instruments set themselves aside with their use of professional materials and features. Straight tone holes with tapered undercuts provide outstanding intonation and response making the YCL-450N play like a pro-model instrument.
